.....Garmin's Virtual Partner actually! I did today's training on the track at Chev College. A very hot day. I wanted to see if I could stay with or just ahead of Virtual Partner for 4km to finish in 26:45 (i.e. approx 6:40 pace).
Knowing I had competition, I charged off like a bull in a china shop when I saw the bottom half of the screen all black which meant that VP was ahead! Within seconds that changed to white and I almost came to a skidding halt and applied the brakes! For the next 2km I stayed about 30m ahead and then slowed down to around 6m in front, to finish 4km comfortably in 26:40. VP sure puts the pressure on! I'm thinking of running with him for the SMC 10km race on Sunday.
